Fourrures Grenier, a family business born out of passion
In 1970, in Lamorandière, Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Rita and Robert Grenier modestly started their fur purchasing and making business. Eight years later, they founded Fourrures Grenier. Inspired by their parents, three out of their five children followed in their footsteps by joining them. In 1985, the building of specially designed premises in Barraute marked a major step toward the growth of Fourrures Grenier.
For over 30 years, Robert, Rita, Claude, Jeanne and Francine have been working at ensuring the successful growth of Fourrures Grenier.
These are the three areas of fur in which we are evolving:
- RAW FURS : We purchase the majority of our pelts directly from trappers, therefore avoiding intermediaries between raw pelts and finished goods.
- THE RETAIL STORE : one of our priorities is to remain in close contact with our customers. This proximity allows us to keep improving our products and satisfy our customers.
- MANUFACTURING : We surround ourselves with compassionate people, who appreciate fur and nature as much as we do. These allies are an integral part of our team and family, and they handcraft boots, hats and mittens.
Our heritage, purchasing and manufacturing in Quebec, recycling and wildlife education are basic principles of life that are directly related to our actions. We ardently get involved in our community and aim at promoting its well-being.

Fur has been at the heart of our lives for over fifty years, and it goes on… Robert Grenier learned the basics of trapping from his father-in-law, Albany. Today, it is Étienne, the grandson's turn to achieve his trapping course.
From generation to generation, the knowledge is handed down… to our great pleasure.
